Critical Boost amplifies Critical damage by 5% per level

A common misunderstanding with Critical Boost is that it amplifies your damage output by 30% on the first level, making players opt to only equip 1 level of Critical Boost. This is false—critical damage from positive affinity is a flat 25% damage modifier. This means that every level of Critical Boost simply raises your critical hit damage by 5% per rank, making every level have the same value.
